, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution was imperative for israel's values, that we do not have people that will be stopped at every checkpoint and cannot move freely in their homeland. making an appeal to jewish values and traditions. i thought it was great. >> it is pushing on an open door. the israelis have offered peace. they offered peace in 1967, at camp david in 2000 and in 2008. the point is not the settlemen s , and that is the reason it is important what obama said. he essentially said it is not the settlements, but that the palestinians have never accepted a jewish state, and until they accept a jewish state and are willing to sign an agreement that ends the conflict, you will never have a settlement. that is why it is third the agenda. iran is one, syria is two, and peace is way down there at number three. >> i do not disagree with you. it is the presen
politics a lot. remember in the presidential campaign, this used to happen to mitt romney all the time. the worst one was that cnbc interview he did with scott pelley. >> my position has been clear throughout this campaign. i'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. >> rape and incest and health and life of the mother, except that's not supposed to be his position. he forgot what his actual position was. his campaign that to clean it up for him. the romney campaign will not say the candidate misspoke but a spokeswoman said he does not actually support an exception for the health of the woman. mr. romney did not misspeak, he just speaked something that missed what the he actually meant. it was also the time at a town hall debate and mr. romney was horrified by the whole idea of. >> it i don't believe employers should tell someone whether they should have contraceptive care or not. >> at the time, seemed like quite a relief. all these republicans support it. mitt romney does not support the blunt amendment to let your employ
to work so what we saw was mitt romney ran a pretty good six months operation, but six months operations don't work very well against for your operations. lou: nobody had ever been in that situation before running against an incumbent. i like the fact republican party is looking critically and being pretty tough on itself in this report, but i have to be h honet with you, the republican solutions for boosting grassrootsts support is the rnco build a database of leaders. could you imagine such a thing? we need a database of leaders, the african-american, asian pacific islander communities. how about a database of the hispanics, blacks, the people of this country, get that database, to the heck with the leaders, you're talking about becoming leaders, through reaching out to those communities and seeking out the next generation of leaders in those communities. republicans should be, they said in this new report, speaking out when the ceos get big bucks. when they receive lots of money in retirement but the middle class gets shafted. folks, i said a year and a half ago on this broadcast whic
santorum almost teamed up for the so-called unity ticket. they wanted to take down mitt romney together. wow, what a ticket that would have been. blah people. it would have been up there with laurel and hardy, twiddly dee and dwiddly dumb. they would have been unstoppable. the only problem, quote, gingrich and son for rum could not agree on who would get to be president. wow. guys, you could have had it all. you were this close. maybe you should try teaming up again. i'm sure you got all of the right ideas of this is what is wrong with the party now. joining me now is melissa harris perry and e.j. dionne. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us. >> melissa? >> they couldn't decide who gets to be president. president obama gets to be president. right? and the reason he gets to be president is because he won a majority of not only the electoral college, which is sufficient, but also the popular vote. >> he would have won more if they had teamed up. >> i'm telling you, there's two or three states i'm certain we could have given over. >> right. >> look, i am convinced that pa
won two years in a row, starting in 2010. romney won last year, and now rand paul has proven he is a different kind of politician. people at cpac felt like he is not selling himself but selling a message of freedom and liberty and freedom from the government and overregulation, which is resonating with young people. >> neil: also challenging the party establishment and sort of ruffling some featheres, including the people who organize cpac, bemoening the time he was allowed to speak. dot that boomerang on him? >> i don't think so. the g.o.p. have the report that it came out today, trying to rebrand themselves and fine out what went wrong, and what went wrong is we have been embracing establishment counties for a long time. first john mccain, then mitt romney, and they're really seeing that rand paul is popular, able to connect with the facebook generation, which as we saw in the 2008 and 2012 election, has huge impact on how people vote. he talked in terms of freedom and deregulation and young people like that message, and he gave examples of, look, too we need to be spend your
issue given mitt romney had a similar plan in massachusetts. when you look at it today you really have to compare, especially given what steve is saying the status quo, which is it's a huge burden on individuals, families and corporate america as it stands now, healthcare costs, versus trying to implement something that is intended to reduce those costs. >> bret: i guess when you hear doctors who are opposed to obama care, or concerned about it. they talk about the $18 million added to medicaid and they talk about it already, doctor shortage and that underpayment for medicare already happens. if you think there is a shortage now, just wait until this thing kicks in in 2014. i guess that is the biggest thing you hear. >> and it points to the distinction between health insurance and real healthcare. you could have sham health insurance, a lot of americans will get. but if you don't a doctor, if doctors refuse to treat because of the payment schedules that are obscenely low that no doctor will take. already today, the medicare patients are turned away from a lot of doctors. if that is wid
successful and mitt romney was elected they would have gotten their way. neil: but, it is they might get their way with president behind them. but declines numbers, might make it difficult even with the president. >> no question, right to work, and end of collective bargaining is bad for unions and workers. you have republican governors, like chris christie, who is supportive of private sector unions and collective bargaining, it is not the end of the world, but, they will support a man who standing by their agenda, that is the way it works in washinnton. it works other way. so, you know, unions -- >> i don't know that they would have needed to getting any. a lot of folks watching this, say, i see they are in trouble in washington having a heck of a time since last year in wisconsin, losing out on some big state cutbacks even in california and what is going on across pretty were the southeast. so, they begin to feel like custer? >> i think for most part, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on g
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads. [ bop ] [ bop ] [ bop ] you can do that all you want, i don't like v8 juice. [ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you... could've had
romney's former vice president's running mate, congressman paul ryan. but first, senator rand paul of kentucky who recently complained the gop is becoming in his words stale and moss covered, criticism many believed is aimed at senator john mccain. >> i want you to clarify, there has been a rift between you and him. you suggested the other day that some of the senators and everyone assumed you were referring to senator mccain when you said the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. you didn't want to say who you were referring to, but you said everybody knows who you were referring to. were you referring to senator mccain? >> i would say figurative sort of sentence in the sense that it isn't to be taken literally. it was also meant for humor. and i think it garnered a little humor, but it is to say we as a gop need to embrace new ideas and grow our party in a way that some haven't. but i didn't intend it to be directed at one person. >> but he was one of those persons that you were referring to? >> it is a figurative, illusion, it is not meant to be taken for one person. he a
romney went shopping for some stores in midtown. it's great to be here this evening in the vast magnificent hilton ballroom, or what mitt romney would call a little fixer-upp fixer-upper. >> you got to admit, no matter what side of the line you sit on, those are pretty funny. those are more than just funny lines. my guest wrote an op-ed for cnn.com on obama's "weaponized wit." obama didn't invent the political jab, but the president has taken the art form to a whole other level to take on rivals. dean's live for us in new york. dean, what is it? why do you think obama's become such a good
about them. so, for instance, mitt romney had this very big focus on the economy, but for the average american, it was tough to see how mitt romney's economic policies would make their lives any better off. i think that's the challenge republicans want to face if they want to be competitive. >> tim, some people would say americans for prosperity is part of the problem. >> not me. . who would say that? >> some people would say that requiring a strict orthodoxy when it comes to no tax increases, that's part of the problem. what's your response? >> in fact, a vibrant, growing, strong movement is a recipe for a party's success, and that movement is outside the party. the democratic party is not that strong. it was the obama campaign, it was george sorros in 2002, 2004. a lot of movement groups on the left that dragged the democrat party along with their energy, with the movement's energy. so i think a strong movement is a good thing. frankly, a not-so-strong party is a good thing. the democrat party is not that strong. it's about the movement, pulling them along. i think that's what we ha
, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h
's not conservative. it didn't get its base out in the 2012 election. >> rush is putting the blame on mitt romney who suddenly became a severe conservative after being a moderate republican. let's look at true conservatives in the running for president in 2012. rick santorum, newt gingrich and rick perry. all three made an appearance at cpac. the influential conservative gathering, we believe these are true conservatives. would any of those true conservatives really have beaten barack obama? amy? >> carol, i don't think anybody would beat barack obama. he's a pop culture icon, and he's captain to that generation that all they care about is pop culture. when rush is talking about people being conservative, he's not talking about social issues i don't think. he's talking about somebody fiscally conservative. i come from a red state and i didn't think mitt romney's conservative enough for me, he is for his state. it's all relative. that's what he's talking about. >> maria. >> agree with amy. i don't think that any of the other candidates would have beaten president obama. now, i do agree with rush that
the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au
with the palestinians and broker an apology over a commando raid. he didn't win the presidency but mitt romney plans to have a say. he's asking political and business leaders to a four-day retreat in utah in june. the idea, look for solutions to the country's problems. romney says he wants to stay engaged in public policy. among those invited are new jersey governor chris christie and house budget chairman congressman paul ryan. >>> 149 airport control towers around the nation are set to close because of spending cuts. the faa says it is targeting low to medium traffic airports. closures could also effect big airports causing delays of as much as 90 minutes. i asked a former air marshal and union president representing air traffic controllers if this would affect air safety. >> there's no concerns for the public as far as safety is concerned. i believe with these closures we'll have somewhere between 150,000 flights that take off and land per year. to give you an idea of what the percentage is, there's more than 26,000 flights that take off and land every day. you are talking 150,000 throughout the
the massachusetts law that went in when romney was there took emergency room business through the roof. and as people were forced to go to -- there weren't enough doctors and they're forced to emergency rooms. >> ironically that the one thing this is supposed to avoid, so people who don't have coverage and go to emergency rooms, actually -- >> fill them up. >> neil: what's it going to do to the quality of care. when you were running ge you were very big at make sure your employees had a very -- i used to work for it, very generous plan. what now? >> simple arithmetic. we aren't going to make that many more doctors and we're pumping 30 to 40 million more people into the system, something has to give. they're going to have to do a lot more home care. a lot more clinical work outside the hospital. it's going to be a problem. but in the other hand, we'll cope with it in some way. >> neil: is it realistic for folks like dr. ben carson or paul ryan to talk about junking the healthcare law all together? i think that's tough. >> i think that's a bad tactic. hopefully we'll get some smart modif
voters. mitt romney doing very well at all with either of those groups. that's why you're seeing this, and $10 million is a lot of money, don. that's why they hope they can make some changes here. >> and if you're in the battleground states, i was in a battleground, you were there as well, they are taking a page out of obama playbook because they were -- they had been in those communities. their ground games were amazing. they knew the people in those communities and they had personal relationships and that's how they won and today reince priebus admitted that as he was announcing that they are going to announce his plan come tomorrow. what will -- what will go beyond voter outreach here in this announcement? will they go beyond voter outreach? what else are republicans planning, paul? >> this is what we think we'll also see in a plan when it comes to a couple other areas where republicans really didn't do well compared to the obama campaign and the democratic party. digit sal one area. they will put a lot of money and manpower into digital to get their message out more effectively, o
is paying their fair share of taxes and looking at warren buffett and mitt romney and the lack of taxes they pay and argue that is fair. >> warren buffett pays corporate taxes. >> he himself says he is paying less taxes than his secretary. >> when you look at that and the portrait of the own tax liability. fair enough. >> you take that case up with warren buffett. that's what he is saying. and when you look at sort of where corporate america is sort of profiting and american middle class wages are stagnant, you can't look at this and say that's fair. >> i agree. high corporate profits are a problem. regulation exacerbate that's problem and limits at built of startups to take on the companies. that's why even in mexico taker taking on the version of warren buffett for the very good reason that's the way you get jobs and growth by having more entrepreneurship and more growth and high corporate tax that are biassed towards the ges and buffets of the world is a burden. >> it's a weird argument to say we need more regulation when corporates a corporations are sitting on record profits. >> th
a candidate mitt romney who wasn't evolving he revolved. >> bill: we do a comp place of compilation of polls. about 53. >> thank you. >> bill: there is no doubt many people have evolved whatever you call it why? >> because the world is changing. >> bill: that's b.s. why? why are people changing? >> i think the media may have a lot to do with it. >> bill: the media? >> people are seeing maybe there is is more exposure. >> bill: ellen degeneres pop culture, we like ellen. >> some people are becoming more accepting. >> bill: and you? >> and i also think this is a complicated issue. you can see both sides to a lot of it. a lot of people say and a lot of issues black and white. on this issue there is a lot of gray. people have gay members of their family and they want to see them have the same rights and so on. so there is a gradual chipping away. i think that's happening with their. you are seeing a lot of people evolve. >> bill: they are valid answers but i think the other side who opposes gay marriage has not made their argument very powerfully. there is usually a reason why you oppose. religi
women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. despite the fact that 57% of americans support the nra, why do they keep winning? for gun owners, winning this battle is not the only thing, it's the important thing. background check, 90% of americans support them. let your member of congress and senator know that for you on this issue winning is the only thing. also, you probably have seen this scene by the way, from last week's cpac convention where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american who is doing a black tea about black people who joined the tea party. >>> and going wobbly on ashley judd and taking down other democrats wither had. key democrats, including hillary clinton and bill clinton are lining up with other democrats. fasten your seat belt. >>> finally, why is cnn's dana bash running after michele bachmann. what is it that
romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my point: these democrats get
they are getting a free ride. that's where romney made his mistake. even people who make 40, 35,000. every time they turn around, sales tax, tolls, register your car, bang, bang, bang. >> i had asked and asked and asked much this administration, this white house, this president, the democrats in congress, what then is the number? what is the number you want? they won't answer. >> bill: they want everything. restaurants in the u.s.a. people dining out less. is this a pure don't have any money play? what is this? >> cut in disposable income. brought to you by another tax. that is the tax holiday, the payroll tax holiday that ended with the fiscal cliff is brought back and that is, according to the restaurant industries the reason that they have seen a sizeable fall. >> bill: like 7.5% rise. what was it it the payroll tax reinstituted to what? >> took 2% off of gross income. >> bill: 2%, i'm sorry. it's 2% and you say that's inhibiting people from eating out. >> that's what the restaurant association is saying. and they are right. they are looking at same store sales and they're off by 3 to 5%. >>
that election. he turned off women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. joen walsh in san francisco. the city hall right behind her there. she should run that place. >> thanks, chris. >> you did a good job and explained by your performance here tonight and honest responses to my question, the problem. >>> coming up, assault weapons plan is ban. 67% americans do support assault weapons ban. why does the nra keep winning? if progressives want to win, draw the line, now background checks. 90% of americans support them. let's let your member of congress know that from you on this issue, winning is the only thing. also, you have probably seen this scene from last week's cpac conference where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american doing a documentary called "black tea" about why some black people actually joined the tea party. >>> going wobbly on a
is on the backs of the american taxpayers. charles: this is one of the romney's piece about the president. do you think there is a sense that it won't have to be paid back? >> this is so much different than a home mortgage. you have to save a down payment, you have to have a job that you have to have the income that can be rationally used to pay back the mortgage. a student loan is much different. this will be paid back on the expectation of future earnings of the student. if you look at the ways this is structured right now, clearly the government does not anticipate that some of these borrowers are going to pay this money back. if you do not pay it back over 25 years -- the interest rates and whether these loans are forgiven or paid back at all is ultimately up to congress. we can win the allegiance of all these voters by forgiving their loans. i think it is a very serious possible scenario. charles: overall, student loans have taken over everything at this point. >> you are talking about $588 billion given out to the younger generation. marco rubio pointed out he had personally just finished p
in 2012, governor romney, gop nominee, he couldn't use obamacare as issue. as people find out more and more, look what is happening to the tax on medical devices. senate overwhelmingly to repeal it, including 33 democrat senators voted for it. as popular opinion starts to weigh in you will see uprising. administration will be very tempted to use european solutions. think that will set them up for real smackdown in 2014. david: steve forbes portfolio, are you 100% stocks now. >> retirement fund, always invested. ride the storm. if you ride the market you will get whipsawed. i ride the wave. david: good advice. steve, see you tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. on fox news channel. >> terrific. david: shibani. shibani: prices for u.s. farmland have been paradise not only for farmers but investors with prices doubling since 2009. the rapid rise has some wondering if the next bubble to burst isn't on wall street but in fact in the heartland of america? jeff flock will join to us have that story. david: also it is he portfolio indicator. a top strategy tells us why ditching the east and heading sou
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
the battle last year. he certainly defeated governor romney, we have not seen his approval ratings, the pupil just came out, his approval ratings a down to where bushes were in 2004. they have dropped dramatically since the election, since december. and part of that is because he has been playing tax increases. he tries to divide people and then raises taxes. he's not threatening to raise taxes on everyone. many of the taxes to pay for obamacare had all americans. it's not targeted just a few people. politicians play trickle-down taxation. this said it will tax the rich and it trickles down to tax everybody. americans have begun to figure that out. cheryl: corporate tax rate. paul ryan 1725%. you think will happen? >> eventually will because it has to because the european average is 25%. or a 35%. obama has raised taxes on subchapter s companies that pay smaller firms and some bigger ones that. the individual rate up to 44%. europe said 25. we're 35 and 44. this is one of the reasons we're not as competitive. as a self-inflicted wound. cheryl: one of the big issues that we will talk about lat
-cylinder, gasoline engine will always do better. >> did mitt romney write that? tracy: all right then. make some real money. let's go down to the floor of the new york stock exchange. sandra smith is there. what's going on, sandra? >> hey, tracy. we're watching shares of blackberry, the much buzzed about new blackberry hits stores today. of course this is after a two-month delay. very much anticipated. this is the new d-10. shares are down today. remember the stock has enjoyed very nice gains leading up to this. it is up 8% for the week. up 21% for the month. remember by the way it is entering a very, very competitive marketplace. so the still a lot of work to do. back to you. tracy: sure is. sandra, she you in 15 minutes. still in my old school curve right here. not going anywhere. >>> coming up banks paying millions of dollars in settlements sometimes without admitting anything wrong. hey, why not? they're getting off too easy. former senator ted kaufman will weigh in next. adam: plus a special day for the best-selling musical act of all time. the beatles. we'll tell you why. here is how the dollar
